Australian Stroke Coalition

The Australian Stroke Coalition has developed a COVID-19 Statement in response to feedback from the clinical community regarding the widespread redesign of medical services and staffing that has occurred due to the pandemic, and the impact this is having on stroke treatment and care.

The Australian Stroke Coalition (ASC) was established in 2008 and is an alliance of organisations and groups working in the stroke field. These include clinical networks, professional organisations and colleges.

The ASC achieves this by setting agreed priorities annually in the following five areas:

1. Acute stroke including TIA, thrombolysis and stroke unit care

2. Rehabilitation

3. Community

4. Workforce, training and professional development

5. Data and quality improvement

Through the work of the ASC membership including the working groups and project teams, the ASC provides a critical communication link between organisations and their members regarding stroke care in Australia.
